Disconnect between management style and customer procesws
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Remote21 May 2019
Extreme is a sales culture that stresses the close. That's fine and should be expected in a product sales company that has an average transaction size of less that $100,000. If you're dealing with Fortune 500 companies in deals that in are in excess of a million dollars, things move a little differently. Customers are more apt to move the goal posts, ask more questions; want additional terms, etc.,. All of these things can delay a close. When management screams because you haven't closed, but are serving the customer in is completely demoralizing. This was Extreme.

The people there are great. The culture is open and transparent (as possible in a publicly held company). An OK company to work for. Just be prepared for a lot of pressure if you are working the larger accounts.
Pros
Work from Home. Good benefits
Cons
High pressure sales management culture.

Great job
Senior Associate Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee) –  Morrisville, NC19 May 2019
Great job and benefits. Only downside is that you are micro managed and some teams can work remote while others can not. The culture is decent but not a job where you will feel at home.
Pros
Free snack bar and drinks
Cons
Micro managed, not constant work from home, potential late shifts and weekends.

Gute Arbeit aber etwas unorganisiert
Associate Sales Development Representative (Former Employee) –  Frankfurt am Main8 October 2018
Den Job den ich dort gemacht habe hat man samt ganzer Abteilung abgeschafft, da Firmen fusionierten und ein Strategieumstellung stattgefunden hatte zu meiner Zeit. Dadurch konnte man mir keinen gleichwertigen Job anbieten, da ich der einzige Business Developer in DACH war, war ich auch in allen Belangen nach der Abschaffung der Business-Developments in ganz EMEA auf mich alleine gestellt.

Great company and solutions
Systems Engineer - Southern Region (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CA11 September 2018
Most presales engineers are teleworkers which offers many benefits and flexibility. A typical day involves working with the sales team on current opportunities or identifying new ones. Other activity involves maintaining customer relationships. Great place to work.
Pros
Culture and products
Cons
Smaller company makes it harder to crack large enterprise deals

Great job culture
Senior Wireless Engineer (Former Employee) –  IN22 July 2018
Flexible work hours. Amazing admin and HR people, ever ready to help. Great motivational teams. Job security is always a little tentative because of acquisitions and the constant lay-offs in the US.

Not a good place to work as part of acquisition
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Salem, NH9 July 2018
Extreme Networks does not treat employees from acquisition well. Avaya was acquired by Extreme Networks in 2017 and the former employees were laid off one large group after another without mercy. It does not reflect well on Extreme Networks.
